The first classic day of passage terns and waders of the autumn yesterday in Staffs during the rain with even Gailey getting in on the action! A mammoth 10hr shift by the Snapper (even I managed 6.5hrs!) produced only the 2nd site record of Bar-tailed Godwit thru NW at 08.00 with other site rarities of 4 Ringies (2E, 2N), calling Redshank and terns coming and going all day that produced probably 4 different Arctic's (ad, 1s & presumably 2 different Juvs) & at least 20 Common. Just a pity we missed out on the Black Tern passage (no records there since 2012 despite increased coverage) and the Little Tern passage that hit the East Midlands counties (no records there...ever!).
